Justin Moore, CEONot so long ago, NSK, a managed service provider used to support its clients’ files with a backup solution from Zenith. However, soon NSK’s clients began having major outages, hardware failure, and poor support experiences with Zenith. It was then Tim Lasonde, President, started looking for a solution that would not fail NSK and its clients. Becoming intrigued by Axcient’s single-vendor, single solution approach, Lasonde was convinced the solution was superior to its existing data backup platform from installation to support. With the Axcient all-in-one data backup, business continuity, and disaster recovery solution, NSK has doubled in size within two years. “You have to have a reliable backup solution to be a successful MSP. Axcient serves that role for us and we do file restore on a daily basis and it’s been flawless,” says Lasonde. The Mountain View-based company builds powerful solutions to help businesses run at their full potential during any kind of disaster. “We do this by combining the power and scale of the cloud with the flexibility of software-defined architectures and the simplicity of consumer applications,” says Justin Moore, CEO, Axcient.
